Use the one from the default postprocessor location (use installed post libaray), it is up to date and it already has the A axis set up in it, you just have to set if it is long X or along Y axis

What they have in them, (you will need to read the recent changes and compare that to other posts) machine definitions (beta) is the biggest one that is in the newest Mach3 post, not all post are kept up to date Mach3 is.
